Parking Bulb replacement

okay.....

this is the easy, screw-looseless way to do this.....


warning.... be careful when trying this..... the wheelwell liner can scratch your paint, if it makes contact........


also, remember to not force anything here.... the plastic shell is thin and flexible, when convinced to move correctly...


all pix taken on the RHS wheelwell....

STEP ONE

identify where to start..........

theres a tab, about midway down the front of the wheelwell... this is gonna be the place to push in (so you can grab an edge to pull out)...

next you wanna (slowly and carefully) work on the edge of the liner till you get a fist-size portion free from the fender wall..

REMEMBER TO NOT LET THE EDGES CONTACT THE FENDER... THIS COUL SCRATCH IT!!!)

then , just easily reposition the liner back along the inside of the wheelwell....


and, make certain to snap it over the tab (as shown in the first step)

heres the tab area again.......

and you're done..............


it looks like its a bit of a force to do it this way, but just take your time and dont pull too much of the liner....


also, there a few push-tabs inside the upper portion of the wheelwell...... by popping them out (push in the center of them with a small screwdriver or such) you'll make the liner even easier to seperate from the body.........


pretty simple, eh??

LED Replacement bulbs

Hey guys, take a look here and tell me what you think.

They look very effective to me. Watch the video, they appear to work really effectively in the reflector.

I still haven't figured out how to remove my tail lght bulbs, it's weird. Like they aren't accessible...

Light went BOOM!

Just received a set of Hoen XenonMatch fog lamps and Parking Bulbs. Installed the passenger side first and tested them and I liked what I saw. Installed drivers side lamps and tested. Fog came on BUT parking light blew up instantly. The bulb changed colors and I think the filament burning up was the reason. Now folks, let me tell you these bulbs are on the expensive side and this should not happen with high performance bulbs....so lets see if Hoen lives up to their reputation. I e-mailed them. I hope there is not going to be a long drawn out battle over a bulb that probably cost less than $1.00 to manufacture. I'll keep you posted.

gen...........


sounds like the filament may have been defective in some way.....


i had very good customer relations with hoen... i hope you do also...

report back either way!!


sms

ps- did you touch the glass?? (oil fom fingers will cause premature heating and could cook the filament...but mostly on the pressurized bulbs like the fogs....)

touch bulbs

esemes to answer your question....

I used medical gloves when installing the bulbs.



I recommend that anyone who replaces the fog lamp do this as well. I installed my fogs without removing the fog lens assembly (or any cover for that matter) and it is super awkward to do this with the washer fluid tank in the way. If you do it without gloves you WILL touch the bulb when trying to install it.

Wow, this is a great customer service.

I purchased from them fogs and was happy. Now I can see is time for the parking. Sad I could not do it together.
